The person I interviewed was my grandpa Ernest Mendoza who is seventy five years old walked into the interview trying to remember his post secondary education that was quite a while ago. His post secondary education was being a part of the US military. The branch he was in, was the Army. The way he came to joining the army, was when he was drafted. He was drafted the day before Christmas, when he was twenty four years old.

In the Roman Empire, England, France, and the Middle East, ever since people have been around, there has always been conflict and fighting. A common theme in war is inhumanity. For example, in World War I mustard gas would produce terrible blisters on soldiers who were exposed to it. Empathy for those suffering young men was not present in those causing the pain.
“The Butter Battle Book” by Dr. Seuss is an effective satirical representation of the Cold War. Dr. Seuss was alive during the Cold War; he wrote this book to display his feelings towards the war and used it as an eye opener to bring about public awareness of not only the national issues, but also the tension involved in some of the global ones. The book wasn’t just entertainment for children to enjoy or just awareness for the adults but a lesson that can be easily understood by both audiences. He was passively trying to get across to people that with the social issues that were arising, there were flaws on both sides of the argument.
In order to emphasize the degree to which the soldiers in World War I changed emotionally, Paul juxtaposes the innocence of his youth with a primal instinct of desperate survival that forms from the brutality of the war. As time passes, each of the soldiers slowly loses his sense of self, specifically seen when Bäumer and Kropp, a fellow soldier, cannot seem to recognize themselves in a regular life in the future after the war. Kropp then interprets this as a loss of preparedness because of war. Paul seems to agree as he reminisces, “We were eighteen
Hours later I was laying in a poorly dug foxhole waiting for the quickly approaching Germans. Lieutenant Bouck told us our suicidal task, we were to be the only men holding this position, we knew something big was going to happen in the Ardennes but we didn 't know the scale of it. Lyle Bouck knew the unfavorable odds and was willing to face them. I don 't know if it was respect for Bouck or if it was love for my country
It also teaches us to not blindly follow. We should be informed and make our own educated decisions rather than listen to the words of one man. Night by Ellie Weisel is the best resource to use due to the greater impact it has on the students that read

Emotional Effects of War War takes a major toll on the emotions of all exposed to the front lines in battle. Often, soldiers return from war with mental issues that are overlooked. Only those exposed to war in it's gruesome and raw form can truly relate to the way it changes a person forever. Harold Krebs is just the same. He returns and cannot discuss the war in the way he was exposed, instead he is expected to have heroic accounts of his time in battle.
The last key factor that I did not really enjoy was that, since this book is half fictional information, then parts of this book is unbelievable. This will lead us into being confused on which parts were true and which parts weren’t. These are the dislikes that I have in the
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is a story told by a soldier named Paul Bäumer about his experiences during World War I. The war lasted from 1914 to 1918 affecting a whole generation of young men across the world. There was so much death during the WWI that sometimes families would lose more than one soldier. Paul describes how horrendous death was in the book. This showed readers the true insight of war at the time.
Erich Maria Remarque’s novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, follows the life of a German Soldier, Paul Baumer, serving in the trenches in France during World War I. This novel is told from Baumer’s perspective and depicts the horrors of living in his shoes during this time. Paul and several other young soldiers volunteered for the war after their instructor in school, Kantorek and other authority figures back home filled their heads with glorious ideas about the war. Very quickly, he discovers the reality- gas attacks, fatal illness, starvation, rat infestations, and bloody trenches. This dehumanizing war affects Paul and the soldiers who fought in it by destroying their physical and emotional well being, changing their views on the meaning of life and death, obliterating their sense of nationalism by betrayal, and
